Sexual Abuse and Assault Law

Sexual abuse and assault incidents occur more often than we would like to think.  Many sex-related abuses go unreported for years or are never reported at all.  Sadly, sexual abuses and assaults are frequently perpetrated by individuals in a position of trust, such as daycare workers, camp counselors, clergy, and others to whom our most vulnerable members of society are entrusted.  Tragically, sexual abuse and assault often occur in daycare centers, camps, religious organizations, charities, residences, and other places of refuge and safe havens.  These organizations are legally obligated to hire and retain their employees and staff in a manner that is safe to the individuals they serve. They can and should be held to account if their negligent hiring and retention caused you to suffer the harms of a sexual abuse or sexual assault.  You may be entitled to recover money for your physical and emotional injuries, medical and mental health expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  If you are the victim of sexual abuse or sexual assault you need a Miami sexual abuse lawyer.

What to do if you suffer Sexual Abuse or Sexual Assault

Call 911 immediately if you are the victim of a sexual abuse or assault.  Give the police and paramedics a complete account of the incident and any injuries.  You should also write down the names and phone numbers of anyone who may have witnessed your incident.  Do not assume the police officer will include witness contact information in the police report.  Seek immediate medical attention for any physical injuries, and request a rape kit in the emergency room if one is not offered.  You may also want to confide in a trusted family member or close friend.  Therapy and legal counsel alone are not enough to help you rebuild your life in the wake of a sexual assault.  You will want to also rely on your personal support system.
